About Craig’s Rest
Leases Type: Exploration/Mining
Primary Commodity: Gold (Au)
Located in the Central Goldfields of Western Australia 70 kilometres to the north-northwest of the town of Leonora is the Infinity Mining Craig’s Rest Tenement. Measuring 4.03 square kilometres in size, Craig’s Rest consists of two adjoining leases. One Exploration and one Prospecting with the commodities identified as gold for both.
The proximity of Craig’s Rest to known deposits, together with potentially favourable structural and geological settings, lend a highly prospective nature to the Craig’s Rest lease. Previous workings extend over a strike of 500 meters and consist of several quartz veins with stock worked alteration zones up to 20m wide.
An exploration license has now been granted based on recognition that the structural trend joining the Craig’s Rest workings with the Katalina workings, extend westwards and have previously been poorly tested over its 1.5 kilometre strike length.
Recent aerial geophysics mapping has identified an extension into the new exploration licenced area. Plans for an air core drilling program are well underway to test these new targets. Craig’s Rest is just part of Infinity Mining’s 13.8 square kilometre Central Goldfields portfolio.
Ready for Development
Craig’s Rest tenement hosts an historic resource of 15,000 tonnes @2.96 grammes per tonne for ~1,432 ounces of gold
- Katalina Mining Pty Ltd 1987 RC drilling 27 (GW001-027) for a total of 50 metres. The drilling was conducted over 10 metre line spacings; significant intersections
- Mount Edon Gold Mines 1992-1997 undertook exploration for gold across this area. A 13-hole RC drilling program was completed for 823 metres. This program was designed to infill previous drilling by
Aztec Exploration and test the extent of the mineralisation at depth and along strike
- During 2000, Tarmoola Australia Pty Ltd completed a Percussion Rotary Air Blast and RC drilling program
- Craig’s Rest tenement hosts an historic resource of 15,000 tonnes @2.96 grammes per tonne for ~1,432 ounces of gold
